Subject Fill disks more than 50%
Date Thu, 24 Feb 2011 02:39:02 GMT

Given that you have have always increasing key values (timestamps) and never
delete and hardly ever overwrite data.

If you want to minimize work on rebalancing and statically assign (new)
token ranges to new nodes as you add them so they always get the latest
Lets say you add a new node each year to handle next years data.

In a scenario like this, could you with 0.7 be able to safely fill disks
significantly more than 50% and still manage things like repair/recovery of
faulty nodes?
